WooWeekly #493: Product Page Redesign | Get On Sale Products | Woo vs Shopify

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials handpicked for you (and the other 18,845 subscribers), so that you can learn something new.

It’s not Wednesday today… since tomorrow is Labour Day, I’ll try not to work and therefore I’m sending the newsletter a day earlier!

Which is a great idea, because in a few hours (10AM NY | 3PM UK | 7:30PM India | 12AM Sydney) I’m running a live class about redeveloping my WooCommerce single product page template and you can still sign up for free (34 seats left). “See” you later?

Anyhow, here’s your weekly round-up of WooCommerce tips and tricks. Enjoy!

So I’d like to study its codebase, see what it returns, and finally test it and print something via a shortcode. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: How to Create Helpful Filters?

Filters are among the most valuable tools on any website with many products. They help you quickly find what you need or narrow down the number of offers by some parameters.

WooCommerce: Remove “add-to-cart=123” URL Parameter After Add to Cart
